If you haven't screwed up you probably don't do much. Don't worry too much about messing up as it is a very good learning experience. It is pretty much guaranteed that now you know to make sure the car is level when draining the old oil. A couple of other things to remember is that due to the engine configuration you need to let the old oil drain for at least 30 minutes ( i wait even longer ) because it runs down slowly. Also when I refill, I stop a quart shy of what the book says is capacity, run it and let it sit a while, check it and add a little at a time until it is correct.
Think about how much money you saved by doing it yourself and you will feel better about a little screwup.
